Sergei Prokofiev - 22 January, 1914

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 22 January 1914, page 587:

Then on to Müller's shop to practicse on the Ibach piano on which I am to perform later. I am not a great lover of the make, and this particular example proved to be horrible. However after an hour and a half I got used to it, and began to make it sound reasonable.
